- Maybe he used the missing funds for that nice tan of his.
Update III: To put this story to rest: Kevin Liptrap, the former Fairview principal who admitted to stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the school, was sentenced to five years of community service, 90 days in a halfway house, and will have to repay every single penny he stole. Also, he'll be forfeiting his pension. (Fox 8)
Update II: Former Fairview High School principal Kevin Liptrap admitted to stealing $60,000 from the school's activities fund and has been ordered to repay the sum, according to the Ohio Auditor's office.
Liptrap was indicted in June on charges of theft. Prosecutors say he pillaged the fund for himself for just over two years, yanking tens of thousands of dollars that he then used on golf and other personal joys on the taxpayers' dime.
The school contacted the auditor's office in September 2010 after noticing chunks of change missing from the athletic department's account. When thousands of dollars were traced to payments at Sweetbriar golf club in Avon, Liptrap said it was for the golf team to practice there. The golf team, of course, did not practice there.
